Completed NaNoWriMo in November, 2012 and have 50,000 words for my next fiction story, Cabaret Island. Carol Burke meets Monte Abbott, a yacht owner, when he finds her at Cabaret Club and Dock, near Route 66 and Chain of Rocks Bridge on the Mississippi River in 1954. She is trying to save the business she loves and inherited, albeit with debts, from her father -a river man from Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Watch for a rough and tumble ride as Carol navigates the river among greedy men and jealous women along the Mighty Mississippi in the late 1950′s.

Changing my book’s title to Body-Slam Diva.
A dear friend with over 30 years of English teaching experience is assisting me with an edit. Several have advised to change the title – Same great story and same easy to read dialogue.
August 15 – 2012 – Shades of June 1952 won semi-finalist Writer’s Type contest. YEAH YEAH YEAH !!!!
July 15 – 2012 – June Tucker - a 1952 story based on men and women from St Louis area before there was Wrestling at The Chase Park Plaza – televised every week on KPLR – Channel 11. When I was a little girl, I used to see the wrestling magazines at the Rexall Drug store. The women were pictured in the corner of front page or on the back cover.
After some investigation, and lots of help from a dear friend and boxing judge, Dave Bowler, I learned wrestling techniques to incorporate in my book, Shades of June – 1952 .
The manuscript is finished and after 3 rounds of editing, I am ordering proof copies. My characters get into all sorts of trouble and June must find her way from being an acrobatic dancer onto the world’s stage of wrestling. She gets entangled in a love triangle with other women wrestlers and a Grudge Match results. The fans boo and hiss, throwing chairs and pop corn. Before the book ends, a male and female wrestler conspire to cut June’s car brake line, and June goes over a cliff to her demise.
Or so we thought. June survives and the attempted killers are apprehended.

Genealogist For Hire
May 13 – h a p p y M O T H E R ‘ S d a y ! ! ! !
Sleuths! Yes, that’s right. Just like Emotional Intelligence, we offer Emotional Genealogy. You know, after we #1 – find family history records – and then cross over that line that separates reasonably exhaustive from obsessively-compulsively exhaustive genealogical research – #2 put some flesh and details on those records and finally, #3 – we write the story around the people, places and events as they may have occurred in the past.
WALLA !!!!!!!!! Emotional Genealogy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And you know what, many families would have an award winning, block buster story to tell – but you never know, if you don’t look. So start your search today and ask Judy if you need help or have any questions.
I would love to hear from you today.

Then, ask me if you need additional help to solve your family’s mystery. You know, discover things like how did Grandma’s family arrive in America – did they come as a family to Ellis Island or travel south from Canada? Is it true that great-grandpa was born in a covered wagon on the Oregon Trail in 1850’s. Or how about, are your mother’s ancestors descendants of the American Revolution in 1776?
Come to me last. That’s right – if your brick wall is more complicated than most – come to me after you have searched on your own and need more results.
